Uncle​ ​Function​ ​has​ ​been​ ​hailed​ ​as​ ​​​​"one​ ​of​ ​the​ ​smartest,​ ​silliest,​ ​and​ ​most​ ​seductively​ ​satisfying shows​ ​around!"​ ​​by​ ​​​.​ ​NY​ ​TheatreGuide​ ​has​ ​warned:​ ​“You​ ​really​ ​need​ ​to​ ​take​ ​the opportunity​ ​to​ ​see​ ​this​ ​group​ ​before​ ​the​ ​apocalypse​ ​happens.”
